order Saith the Lord God, and not a house of confusion. Will I accept of an offering, Saith the Lord, that is not made in my name, or will I receive at your hands, that which I have not appointed, and will I appoint unto you, Saith the Lord, except it be by law, even as I and my Father ordained unto you, before the world was? I am the Lord thy God and I give unto you this commandment that no man Shall come unto the Father but by me or by my word which is my law Saith the Lord, and every thing that is in the world, whether it be ordained of men by thrones, or principalities or powers or things of name whatsoever they may be that are not by me or by my word Saith the Lord, Shall be thrown down, and shall not remain after men are dead, neither in nor after the resurrection, Saith the Lord your God; For whatsoever things remaineth are by me; and whatsoever things are not by me, shall be shaken and destroyed. Therefore, if a man marry him a wife, in the world, and he marry her not by me, nor by <​my​> word; and he covenant with her, So long as he is in the world, and She with him, their covenant and marriage is not of force when they are dead, and when they are out of the world therefore they are not bound by any law when they are out of the world therefore, when they are out of the world, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are appointed angels in heaven, which angels are ministering Servents to minister for those, who are worthy of a far more and an exceding and an eternal weight of Glory, for these angels did not abide my law, therefore they cannot be enlarged, but remain separately and Singly without exaltation in their Saved condition to all eternity and from henceforth are not Gods, but are angels of God for ever and ever.
And again verily I Say unto you, if a man Marry a wife and make a covenant with her for time and for all eternity, if that covenant is not by me or by my word which is my law and is not Sealed by the Holy Spririt of promise, through him whom I have aniointed and appointed unto this power then it is not valid, neither of force when they are out of the world [p. 2]
